in Business

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – The Knoxville Beer Board is pushing back the date when they’ll talk about two local bars cited repeatedly for violating Knox County’s 10 p.m. alcohol curfew.

On Dec. 28, the city filed amended complaints seeking to suspend the beer licenses held by Paul’s Oasis as well as Billiard’s and Brews. Citations for violating the curfew continue to pile up at each location, with eight served on Paul’s Oasis and 12 written for Billiard’s and Brews, according to police records.

The beer board was to discuss repercussions for those citations on Monday, Jan. 11, but that has been canceled. Pre-hearing conferences for both businesses will now happen on Thursday, Jan. 14.

The Knox County Board of Health voted 7-3 in favor of passing a new COVID-19 Social Gathering Limitation Regulation last month limiting some social gatherings to 10 people, including gatherings of more than 10 people within the same 360 square-foot space if the area is entirely or partially within 30 feet of any restaurant, club, or business allowing on-site alcohol consumption.
